Safety 1st Celebrates 30 Years
This month marks the 30th Anniversary of the iconic Safety 1st Baby on Board sign, the little yellow sign that parents hang in their rear windshield to serve as an important reminder to others on the road to drive a little safer, a little slower, to give parents peace of mind. This sign created a child safety movement that still lives on today. To celebrate their 30th, Safety 1st is working with the National Highway Traffic Safety Association, to include 1 million “Look Before You Lock” window clings with Baby on Board signs to encourage parents to check the backseat before leaving the car to prevent infant and toddler heatstroke. When combined, these two little signs become a simple, smart solution with a big impact—giving parents peace of mind that children are safe. Make sure to visit the Safety 1st Facebook Page to win great prizes including a pair of Diamond earrings to celebrate their Diamond Anniversary!
